Norte, 67, previously starred alongside the 51-year-old actress in the CBS series about a woman with a unique set of skills who acts as a sort-of anonymous guardian angel to those in her city who find themselves with nowhere else to turn for justice.

In a previous statement provided to Fox News Digital, the network announced that Noth would no longer be filming new episodes of the show after multiple women came forward alleging that he had sexually assaulted them.

Speaking to Gente, Queen Latifah explained how difficult it has been to navigate the situation as both a woman and an ambassador for her show.
